A near future dystopia in which a film telling the story of a terrorist cell within a convoy of immigrants moving toward the U. S. border is deliberately released to the media as an actual threat, and even though no evidence is found and the actor who played the leader in the film offers to testify, he is manipulated into trying to flee and imprisoned. Everything was designed to give the president an excuse to move troops to the border.
